The Do Good Bus was created to bring people together to do charitable work and to help their community. After an 11,000 mile journey around the United States, this bus along with the help of 750 volunteers was able to help 25 different causes! Teamwork and altruism are the heart of this organization and we are proud to be able to bring this experience to our clients as a charitable team building program.
Make an Impact, Give Back Locally
We are proud of our company culture at Teambonding and we understand you’re proud of your culture as well. For each bus ride, we work closely with your team to incorporate your core values and company mission. We build in time to research your company and your employees to find activities that will be best for your group all while giving back.
“I have been working on new programs all year and sometimes one comes along that is so perfect we have to get involved. That is how I see the Do Good Bus. We have many charitable programs, but this is different, this brings us and our clients out into the world, outside the hotel ballroom to really get our hands dirty and do some good. The idea that it can pick up the client at their office, feed them, entertain them, do some good, build their team and bring them back 5 hours later- had to do this.”
During each Do Good Bus event, we have three goals:
AWARENESS – There are hundreds of causes that help our city, our neighbors, and our friends; our mission is to bring visibility and accessibility to these causes.
COMMUNITY – We aim to prove the power of working together with a shared purpose of making a difference.
SOCIAL IMPACT – We hope the Do Good Bus experience will inspire your staff to keep doing good – at work, at home, and in their community.
Each is tailored to serve one of these categories:
EARTH — Working with and/or for the environment. Working with your hands to build, paint, garden, city cleanups, etc.
PEOPLE — Working for a cause benefiting people in general. A soup kitchen, shelters, children, etc.
ANIMALS — Helping the four-legged types. Dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, etc.
An Experience of a Lifetime
Giving back is a natural part of team building while working together for a charitable cause. To make this even more exciting, we suggest keeping it a secret from your team about where you are headed, and what you will be doing. Working side-by-side, your team will forge lasting, authentic connections. Hopping on the Do Good Bus, not only connects your team to the community, but it creates awareness about the local charities around and connects them directly with a cause.
We work together with you to pick a cause that best suits your organization.
Since our work lives, social lives and even family get-togethers have moved online, you’re probably thinking about effective ways to engage your remote team for non-work related events. Enter: Virtual Team Building.
Rather than expecting office life to “go back to normal” after coronavirus, business and team leaders should be planning for what many are calling the “new normal.” So what does team-building after COVID-19 look like? For starters, it includes safe and sanitary workspaces for employees, potentially more remote hires, and flexible work-from-home policies.
As a food writer for Zagat, I used to scribble stories about all sorts of people: chefs, butcher, bakers. About seven years ago, I had an interesting interview with a bean-to-bar chocolate maker. I learned all about how she created her chocolate from scratch. Instead of telling me about commonplace machines like grinders and enrobers, she started talking about using rotisserie chicken roasters, juicers, and hair dryers!
First off, what is a digital workspace? A digital workspace is a technological framework that centralizes an organization’s applications, data, and desktop delivery. It allows employees to access their apps and data on any device and from any location.
Given the state of the current environment, businesses everywhere are adjusting to remote work. Whether your organization is a veteran to remote work policies, or entirely new to the concept, successfully maintaining a remote team requires the same general best practices as a traditional one would. Fortunately, this growing trend offers a plethora of benefits for both employees and businesses overall. From greater flexibility to improved productivity, the switch to remote work can be a liberating thing when properly managed. That said, proper management begins with ensuring your remote employees are equipped with all necessary tools to perform their jobs both efficiently and securely. Now more than ever, cybercriminals are targeting remote workers, and in these fast-paced times, it’s important you feel confident in the security of your business and the data behind it. To help make certain of that, we’re sharing a few cybersecurity best practices to reduce the risk of your remote employees falling victim to an attack.
During this unique time, we are all experiencing feelings of fearful anticipation. News changes from hour to hour, and we are needing to be more flexible than ever. With many being requested to work remotely, our trust issues will be triggered. Becoming aware of this will assist you in adapting to this situation.
Remote workers need to feel connected to one another as much as an “IRL” team in an office environment. The trick is figuring out team huddle ideas that bridge physical gaps. Whether your team went remote recently due to COVID-19 restrictions or are permanently remote, a sense of bonding and community is essential to productivity. It also builds friendships, and many remote team members look forward to team huddles as a time to check-in and connect.
Employee productivity is essential to building and maintaining a successful company. It may be hard to believe, but the average worker is said to only be productive 2 hours and 23 minutes out of an 8-hour workday. Employees are often distracted by unwork related items such as social media, news websites, chatting with colleagues, snacking, and even job searching.
So, you suddenly found yourself managing a remote team? Here you will understand the benefits of virtual team building as we share activity ideas you can implement. Remote work has been on the rise for years, and as COVID-19 is moving more teams online, remote team building is becoming a necessary step for business operations and human resources. It’s also an opportunity to get creative about how your team bonds and has fun in this new space, especially during stressful times.
